Former Canadiens forward Michael Ryder was known as a natural scorer. In his rookie season in 2003-04, Ryder finished second in the NHL Rookie of the Year voting, edging out Boston Bruins goaltender Andrew Raycroft.

However, the Newfoundland native has been in the news lately but for all the wrong reasons.
As reported by the Markerzone website, Ryder was arrested for driving under the influence while over the legal alcohol limit. The arrest occurred on February 12 in the town of Mount Pearl, Newfoundland.
The 42-year-old former Canadiens player was called to St. John's Provincial Court last Friday but was unable to appear in person. His lawyer in the case represented him and Ryder will be back in court next month.
Ryder was the Habs' eighth round draft pick in 1998 and played for the CH from 2003 to 2008, including two 30-goal seasons. In the summer of 2008, he joined the Boston Bruins with whom he won the Stanley Cup in 2011.
Two years later, Ryder made a comeback with the Habs in what was Marc Bergevin's first trade. Bergevin traded Erik Cole to the Dallas Stars to bring the number 73 back to Montreal. He also played two seasons with the New Jersey Devils afterwards.
